 Six Themed Events to Enjoy This Fall  🍇👻🍁🍺

Summer is wrapping up: vacations are coming to a close, kids are going back to school, Halloween decorations are popping up in stores, and all things pumpkin spice are gearing up to make their annual comeback. All signs point to red and orange leaves, crisp air, and pumpkins being right around the corner.

Upcoming races taking place throughout Northern California:

Davis Labor Day Race

Join us at Downtown Davis’ Central Park for this 5K & 10K Run/Walk + Kid’s 1/2 Mile Fun Run. Finisher medals, age group awards, and a pancake breakfast await you at the finish line.
